    I feel so much when I'm in the forest.

    It makes me want to smile and also cry. It is like this perfect mixture of light and dark or day and night.

    The woods are such a beautiful

    and relaxing place to be in. It can be loud or quiet. Appear dead or alive. There's a certain energy that thickens the atmosphere and I never want to leave. I have gone into a special area in the woods that my best friend "claimed" as his hahah. And there is a stream with a...

    There's something so good about being in the

    woods, alone, in the dark. Feeling so vulnerable and free. Smoke leaving my lips whilst looking up at the dark trees and moonlit sky.

    The woods is one of those things

    I love going for a run in wooded areas.

    Something about it is so soothing. All is the way it should be when you're running among nature. How amazing is this tree?

    Bluebells

    Last week would have been our annual Bluebell walk. Our chosen location is a private wood that opens to the public for a small fee (all proceeds go to charity). The bluebells in these particular woods are so lush and plentiful, it feels like you are walking through a deep, purple...

    My Special Place

    We lived in a small green valley with a fast flowing creek running through it. At a young age my grandfather (who was born and lived his whole life on that land) took me along when he went up the mountain to fish for trout, in a mostly hidden mountain brook. It was a beautiful...

    I Live In The Woods

    Our house is in the woods our drive is like a 1/2 mile long. You can't see our house from the road. We live on a river and from our shore you can't see any other houses. I love where we live.

    Where Love Goes To Grow

    I feel so connected with nature.

    The trees, the grass, the clouds.... Everything is alive and breathing. As are humans. We are all connected to the earth and come from it, but we tend not to acknowledge it. It's very important to get back in touch with nature! Go for a walk in the woods, breathe in the air that...

    I long to be in the woods,

    hiking, and just loving nature. Everything about the woods sets me free and lights a fire in my soul. I love it. My heart aches when i can't go to my happy place in the woods. Heaven is hiking through the trees and look down at the lake.

    I absolutely adore nature,

    so I love the woods. I love the way the woods smell. When I'm in the woods I feel like I can actually breathe and just let go of any problems. Also I'm very into camping besides the insects, I'm not too fond of spiders! Yuck.

    Trees take so long to grow

    that they live in a time outside ours. A single tree lives across generations of us, so a wood brings us the wonderful and spiritual in a way not many places can. There is a sense of otherness within its boundaries. There is peace, regeneration and wildness for us there.

    is very peaceful. At the same time though, the woods can bring so many experiences. Anything can happen in the woods. There can be romance, adventures, wanderings...anything your heart desires.

    Surrounded By Nature

    There is nothing like being in the woods, surrounded by nature, cradled in it's embrace. If you listen carefully you can hear the rhythm of life as it softly speaks to you, letting you know that you are part of something greater than yourself.

    The wind in the trees with branches whipping

    and rain pouring during a wild summer storm. The early spring glimpses of trillium or jack-in-the-pulpit. The silent stillness of a winter wood with snow dripping from branches. The explosion of orange and red and the crackle of leaves under foot in the autumn.
